Post what you just had to eat.

Restaurant, something you knocked up, crap paramo in a bun at the boro ground....whatever. 

 

Went to the Buck Inn in Sadberge last night. Mrs got sucked in by their instagram photos. Tried a mozzarella stick parmo as I was going o get them as a starter and decided to kill two birds with one stone. came looking like something a student had made. I know places will take good photos for instagram but plate and presentation of the entire meal was 100% different it was laughable! 

Wish I took a photo of it now, as I looked it up on Instagram as we left and the presentation was 100% different. Attached the insta photo, and then one that's been posted to their FB page and I'd say even that was generous. Anaemic chips, bland parmo (I know they're hardly a delicacy), and to cap it all off a wasp was harassing us so I had to trap the sod int he ketchup bowl, so he was raging at me throughout the meal. Service was slow AF. 

I should have read the warning signs when we pulled up and it said on the menu "Check out the George pub & grill in Stockton" and they share a website so probably not the best start given it had a 1* rating for ages and pretty much try and get in the news/unilad/ladbible all the time with shock tactics (punch your ex for a parmo, 3000cal meals etc). Checked Scores on the Doors and this place at least had a 5*. In terms of quality overall I would say 2/5, and thats feeling generous.

Lmao I know restaurants and fast food places have their dishes photographed and edited professionally but that's close to false advertising, like they cooked it like that once and then served the crap you got ever since.

Don't get me started on The George Pub & Grill, the place shouldn't be allowed to sell food. I've also read recently he's removed all diet drinks from draught? Way to alienate your customers with diabetes.

I've just had a Beef & Tomato Pot Noodle and a Pepperoni Dairylea Lunchables because i'm at work and also a big manchild, but last night I had a banging Chinese takeaway.

That parmo looks garbage too, where's the rest of it?

Compare that to this one from Norton...

    • I do believe players will step up for this they have got to still expect a loss as I attended Elland Road in December if Leeds turn it on we be hammered. But having said that Leeds away form isn't that great
    • The poster who mentioned Warnock wanting one more job to reach a milestone. Just found the article. He is 12 games short of reaching 1500 games as a manager. Said he would like a job to end of season to reach that milestone. We have 12 games between now and end of season. Its almost as if it was meant to be...
    • What you thinking for this Leeds game Durham? I know people say anything can happen in the championship but I will be stunned if it's not at least 3 nil to Leeds.
    • We do normally sack managers on Monday nights so still have my fingers crossed 🤞. 
    • This post absolutely nails it and is by far the biggest problem with the club. The Media are absolutely terrified to criticize the club and point the finger, afraid of being excluded from the club like the Gazette were for a time.  I've been to a few Boro events which Maddo has attended and he is a really nice bloke but he simply should not on BBC Tees if he's working for the club. Its a conflict of interest, he's not going to criticize those at the club and in turn he has this false spin that he puts on the radio. I remember in September when he said this season is one of transition, well i'll tell you right now that the ST prices do not reflect transition and must be lowered but we know that is not the case. The problem is at the club as it seems no-one dares question Gibson, he wont allow it and I dont think thats a healthy working environment to have.  Everyone right now is absolutely slaughtering Woodgate, for me personally I won't because I dont think its right. Gibson is the one who shoulders the blame and he can own this casserole of ineptitude. I dont think one person of sound mind wanted Woodgate appointed at the end of last season, the club tried to string it out as if they were extensively looking at all options. This was a ruse and Jonathan was their choice all along.  Finally, its one thing appointing a rookie manager who no-one wanted, for the cheap option. But if your going to do that at least give him some proper funds to get some quality players to refresh the squad and give him a chance to succeed. So now when the inevitable does happen, Woodgate like Mogga will be the fall guy to have his reputation damaged. The fans will be convinced the next manager will be the next messiah, overlooking the upper management teams atrocious judgement and thus the cycle begins again.  This ones on you Gibbo.
